We’re giving away keywords throughout August, so give us a call on +44 (0)1244 752 299 to claim yours for one month before 31st August. Here’s everything you need to know about keywords and short numbers to make sure you use yours to its full potential.
Short numbers and keywords are dynamic tools, complementary to any style and size of business.

In the past, these types of numbers have gained a reputation of being costly to the end user.

We can also supply free text short codes, which are completely free for your customers to text in to.
